Di Natale leads Italian comeback to stun Liverpool

Liverpool 2 Udinese 3

Three second-half goals sent Liverpool spinning to defeat in tonight's Europa League Group A match at Anfield.

Brendan Rodgers' team led when Jonjo Shelvey headed them into a first-half lead from Stewart Downing's cross.

However, Antonio Di Natale levelled the scores early in the second half and a Sebastian Coates own goal and Giovanni Pasquale effort made it 3-1 before substitute Luis Suarez concluded a burst of three goals in five minutes when he reduced the deficit.
